This book contains powerful, well-known methods for building great products in a readable format. At it's core, this is a book about *Product* Strategy. I think the ideas here could apply to nearly any kind of product / service you want to build.
I've been searching for a book that clearly outlines the process from start to finish for validating a business idea, and this book does exactly that. It explains how to take an idea from concept to either kill, pivot, or execution, which makes for an easy-to-follow approach to UX strategy.
The first time through the book, I highlighted and bookmarked pages; the second time through I will use it as a guide with my next client; and each time thereafter I will use it as a reference. This book will never see Goodwill; it will be a definite go-to in my library.
What I particularly liked about this book is that is truly all anyone needs to get started. Jaime does an excellent job explaining her process, which she's used for over 20 years, which therein lies a lot of value. Where else can you find such a treasure trove of helpful information? Without this book, I would be spending a lot more time troubleshooting the process. Why reinvent the wheel when this book is available to you?
The book is very well written with a straight to the point writing style and a wide variety of examples that helps readers see how the UX concepts are implemented in real life. I appreciated the chapters’ opening stories and their lesson learned paragraphs that served as a great introduction to every topic.
The true added value of this UX strategy book is that you can equally learn from it whether you are looking to learning the overall concepts of UX, product and business strategy or if you’re looking for a step by step manual for implementing a UX strategy project effectively.
Conclusion: Must read for all product, business, and UX professionals out there.
I recommend this book to people especially who're new to UX and want a top-down funnel approach to designing and creating a new product not through conventional, traditional methods but through a lean, fail-first-learn-fast approach. I especially liked the whole "get out of your building, talk to customers before an MVP and not after" constant-learning approach to UX.
I enjoyed reading this book and would suggest anyone interested in lean entrepreneurship and creating lean startups to have a good read with this book.
it seemed like the author is quite experienced, but didnt spend much time on contents of this book.
I feel like i overpaid for this book.
sorry, only 2 stars.

I would have liked more examples that are not necessarily transactional based. UX from a service perspective.
The modes, patterns and tools demonstrated in the book are also useful, such as interviews, A/B testing, and so-forth. I would recommend finding the book in your library, or university library to read; though, due to the fast-changing nature of the web industry, I'm not sure how much of it will be relevant in a few years time.
